I have been in the real estate business now for 28 years. I still do it not because I have to anymore but because I want to. What is the strange thing is that in the 70th year of my life I am having by far the biggest year also. I am not over worked, over anxious, or subject to panic attacks. In fact is all seems too easy. Granted I have invested time and thousands of dollars in increasing my knowledge base so I think I have hone my skills well and value to time value of money and of course the money value of time. I just have one problem and it is this; when it gets too easy it indicates more than the skill you have, it is also a warning sign.
Now before you think that I am some crazy perfectionist never happy with anything, let me stop you there. I spend 4 months in Florida at our second home and will go overseas twice this year. So why in the wide wide world of sports would I worry? Simple, when things become too easy the tendency is not to see change coming. If you are making tons of money then just go for it the inner voice says. The realist in me sees something different. The change we now experience is coming at an alarming pace and it just pass you buy. I am also not so arrogant that I think that I am indispensable. We all can be replaced and at the very least surpassed.
Finally, life should always challenge you. I am planning on being 95 and there is no reason that I can't reach out for more and I should also never stop learning. It is a blink of an eye that we are a part of this world and after that there are no guarantees. So if this happens to you where everything starts to seem to easy in your business of course, savor the moment. The next thing is to have you own personal brainstorm and learn about something you don't know.
